HRSA’s Investment in Public Health Training Centers
Editors of a new JPHMP supplement highlighting HRSA’s Investment in Public Health Training Centers describe the uniqueness of the public health workforce and HRSA’s efforts to support it this way:
“Although not as easily defined or demarcated as other health professions, public health is a critical health workforce specialty, just as primary care physicians, nurses, dentists, and other health professions whose training is supported by the Health Resources and Service Administration’s (HRSA’s) Bureau of Health Workforce. Comprising both the Preventive Medicine Residency program and the Public Health Training Centers (PHTCs), the Bureau’s public health workforce portfolio, although relatively small, is a unique and critical component of the federal government’s overall public health efforts.” ~ Sophia Russell, DM, MBA, RN, NE-BC; Paul Jung, MD, MPH, FACPM
A previous supplement in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice discussed the activities of the Preventive Medicine Residency program. This issue focuses on the role of the Public Health Training Centers in training the US public health workforce. Read it here.
